    Blanco was not offsides, even the biased Harkes agreed he was onsides after watching the replay.

  2. Berlin says:

    Serioux plays for Dallas now (turncoat). Pat Onstad (Houston) also featured for the Canadian side.

  3. kartik says:

    Good catch Berlin.

    I still think of Serioux as a Houston player. I mean honestly would we pay attention him if it were based on his Hoops run except for the hard challenge on Becks?

    BTW, added Ivan Guerrero and Gonzalo Segaras to the list also and of course Onstad too. I posted late at night and simply forgot about some guys and in the cas eof Serioux that he was no longer with the Dynamo.
